Old family secrets bring a chance for new love in this heartwarming holiday romance novella set in the fictional Cornish seaside village.
Christmas is a bittersweet time for Borteen Bay native Pippa Freeman. There are plenty of good memories, of course—but there are some painful ones too. And that difficult past suddenly comes to the surface when Pippa’s mother is implicated in a mysterious occurrence in town. As a closely protected family secret is revealed, Pippa wonders if she'll ever experience a happy Christmas again.
But hope is not lost, as Pippa soon discovers when police officer Ethan Gibson—an old friend from school—offers his support. The kindness of the gesture, and the understanding in Ethan’s eyes, help Pippa realize that no matter what trials she may face, Christmas can still be a time of joy and renewal.
